Life is a constant flux and rhythm of being alone and getting together. I love my alone moments. I treasure my being alone with myself and being alone with God. I need these moments to be in touch with who and what I am.
But I also love being together with others. There is no way I can imagine my life without others in it. I love my friends and my family and there is nothing happier than being with them. I need moments with them it is they who have made me what and who I am.
This is the beat of life, like the ebb and flow of my breathing, the circadian rhythm of night and day, the constant changing of the season, the passage from birth to death to life again. Thus, we were created and everyday we are renewed in this fashion.
